The Accessorize brand is part of the larger Monsoon brand, famous for its elegant approach to women’s fashion. Accessorize takes Monsoon’s elegant, feminine, aesthetic and dedicates it specifically to a huge range of women’s accessories, such as necklaces, bracelets, bangles, earrings, glasses etc. Monsoon and Accessorize are tied together by a shared sense of style that focuses on sophistication and freedom of expression. The brand has a youthful exuberance that strikes a chord with the their target audience. This is why there is such a wide range of styles and colours across Accessorize’s vast range of jewellery, bags, and glasses.
Peter Simon founded monsoon in 1973 and set up shop in London’s Beauchamp Place, after becoming inspired by his travels. The very first Accessorize shop was opened in 1984. The stores proved a big hit, with their eclectic blend of treasure chest style bazaar and luxury fashion. Although Monsoon and Accessorize haven’t been up and running as long as some of the other big British fashion brands, they have more than established themselves as a classic British brand. With the Accessorize brand name travelling far beyond its UK origins; in fact, Monsoon and Accessorize have spread to over 74 different countries, with over 1400 stores. This incredible achievement is probably due to the brand’s characteristic aesthetic and vast range of products. Accessorise offers so many different designs that almost everyone’s sense of taste is catered too; that said, there is still a certain aesthetic that is maintained through their collections.
Not content with simply becoming an industry leading fashion powerhouse, the Monsoon Accessorize brand takes corporate social responsibility seriously. Sustainablity is high on the agenda and Monsoon Accessorize has received the Queens Award for their impressive work towards sustainable development. The brand also works closely with the independent communities around the world that have helped to create their products. The Monsoon Accessorize trust has been in existence for over 20 years and since it’s inception has contributed to the aiding of women and children in Asia.
The Accessorize glasses collection available at Red Hot Sunglasses represent the very best from this classic fashion brand; they combine a soft feminine aesthetic with a smart professional sense of style, making them perfect for working women. Accessorize is famous for its own unique look, and nowhere is this more apparent than in its distinctive range of eyewear. Accessorize has a wide variety of shapes available, and there is a definite preference towards rectangle and oval rims in our collection. These shapes have an ever-so-slight retro aesthetic without overtly trying to be “old-fashioned”. The benefit of this is that Accessorize glasses have a timeless feel to them and aren’t likely to fall out of fashion within the next five (or even ten!) years.
If you compare Accessorise’s jewellery to its eyewear you’ll see a slight difference. Whereas the jewellery is all based around different metals and colour systems (gold, silver, rose gold, etc), the glasses all share a similar colour scheme and overall aesthetic. This isn’t to say that there isn’t variation within Accessorize’s eyewear collections, just that it’s not neatly laid out into its different sections the way its jewellery is.
When looking at the colour palette on Accessorize’s range of glasses, you’ll notice lots of darker colours with little hints and highlights of richer, brighter colours. By adding these brilliant flares of colours to black and darker frames, Accessorize adds a little style and opulence to otherwise smart and sophisticated glasses. This combination of darker and lighter colours makes Accessorize glasses perfect for professional women who want to look smart without completely sacrificing their sense of style!
